Why in damnation would they use the buyout on a player who's contract runs out after this year? Did you hear the rumor from the checkout guy at WaWa?

Hoped, sure. But we all knew that wasn't going to happen.
I would've preferred 2 years at his age. Hell, 2 years at this cap hit would be reasonable. Unfortunately I knew that wasn't feasible. I've just been waiting for this to drop. 3 years I could've lived with. 4 is almost certainly too long, there are very few players worth that cap hit at that age.
